SCOTT DEMENT

LEAD PASTOR

Christ Community Church was pivotal in Scott’s formation when he attended MidAmerica Nazarene University (BA in Math Ed) and again when he attended Nazarene Theological Seminary (MDiv). So when they invited him to be the lead pastor in 2010, he knew God had already prepared the way through prayer. He and his wife Sarah raised their three children at Christ Community and love it. 

Scott meets us at our point of need and encourages us to receive the gracious gifts of God. Whether it’s through scriptural inspiration, marriage mediation, or racial reconciliation, he guides us to follow Jesus.

JAY SANDBLOOM

WORSHIP AND COMMUNICATION PASTOR

Go Royals! Jay loves them when they’re good and when they’re not. He approaches people the same way. He loves people. Jay leads us to love Jesus by singing and playing the keyboard.

He was taught at Olivet Nazarene University and Nazarene Theological Seminary to use ancient worship practices (liturgies, hymns, and the Eucharist) blended with a focus on the future (a worship band, new songs, and prayers) to empower us for God’s mission through the Church.

AMY SCHLEPP

CHILDREN'S PASTOR

Whether she is subbing at one of our neighborhood elementary schools or teaching on Sunday in the Kingdom Kids Clubhouse, Amy teaches children more than information — she engages children for transformation. 

Amy has uniquely taken her theological training from Mt. Vernon Nazarene University (BA in theology) and Nazarene Theological Seminary (MDiv), mixed it with her passion for early childhood development, and blended in her experience raising five children so that she can motivate Kingdom Kids to love Jesus and serve others.

You’ll find Jenn studying Greek at Family Tree Nursery, running one of her six children to an event, or preparing for her next marathon. Around Christ Community, you’ll find her leading the Alpha course, organizing life groups, and guiding folks through their personalized spiritual formation plan.
